Reconstruction of a normal glenohumeral relationship is desirable for a successful arthroplasty. Double-contrast computed tomography was performed on 49 healthy shoulders in young volunteers. For creation of a uniform spatial reference system, the subjects were positioned in a thoracobrachial orthosis with the arm adducted in the coronal plane and the(More)
BACKGROUND Reverse-geometry shoulder replacement requires fixation of a baseplate (called a metaglene) to the glenoid, to which a convex glenosphere is attached. Most systems use screws to achieve this fixation. The suprascapular nerve passes close to the glenoid and is known to be at risk of injury when devices and sutures are inserted into the glenoid. We(More)
In the present prospective study, we report about our experience with massive rotator cuff tears treated by means of a nonresorbable transosseously fixated patch combined with subacromial decompression. Forty-one patients were followed clinically and radiographically for a mean duration of 43 months. Their mean preoperative Constant and Murley score(More)
INTRODUCTION Identification of a suitable treatment for osteochondral repair presents a major challenge due to existing limitations and an urgent clinical need remains for an off-the-shelf, low cost, one-step approach. A biomimetic approach, where the biomaterial itself encourages cellular infiltration from the underlying bone marrow and provides physical(More)
BACKGROUND Anatomic ACL surgery, including double bundle ACL reconstruction, has been investigated widely. The purpose of this study was to gain insight in the currently used surgical management of anterior cruciate ligament injuries amongst Belgian orthopaedic surgeons. METHODS A survey consisting of epidemiological questions, ACL surgery related(More)
